This is an Andhra street food recipe, prepared from leftover Dosa batter (which have turned slightly sour). These golden frtters are beautifully crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The addition of Semolina/ rava adds that crispiness to the fritters. I chanced upon them here. Its a quick fix snack, if you have the batter ready. They are usually served with a chutney, i prepared a cilantro chutney to go with this.Dosa Batter- 2 cups Shallots– 5 nos ; sliced Ginger- Garlic- 3/4 tsp Curry leaves- a handful Rice flour-1-2 tblsp. Semolina– 2 tblsp. Green chillies -2 nos; finely chopped Salt to taste Vegetable oil- to deep fry
Combine all the ingredients except for the oil. The mixed batter should be a slightly thick batter (add rice flour one spoonful at a time), and keep aside for 30 minutes. Heat oil for deep frying, put spoonfuls of batter into the oil and fry until golden brown. Serve hot with cilantro chutney.
